EFFECT OF ENALAPRIL AND METFORMIN ON OXIDATIVE STRESS IN NEWLY DIAGNOSED TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS AND HYPERTENSIVE PATIENTS
Objective: The present study was aimed to find out the impact of Enalapril and Metformin on oxidative stress (OS) in newly diagnosed diabetes
mellitus and hypertensive patients.
Methods: A free radical production was measured by lipid peroxidation and antioxidants like catalase, reduced glutathione, glutathione s-transferase,
and superoxide dismutase were measured using ultraviolet spectrophotometer.
Results: There was a significant decrease in free radical production and a significant increase in antioxidant enzymes in both the treatment groups.
Conclusion: Enalapril and metformin combination in diabetic patients has a more significant effect on OS than metformin alone. This combination
also has a significant effect on OS in diabetes and hypertension coexisting patients.
